Five Comic Inspired Rap Videos

Hive Five: Our daily listicle of musical musings

Comic-Con International kicks off today in San Diego and the annual event will see a large and colorful gathering of mega-nerds celebrating their love of super-hero-filled fantasy worlds. But as we know, rappers are known to embrace their super-hero geeky side. Here’s further proof in these five Comic-Con certified hip-hop flicks.

1. Ghostface Killah, “Daytona 500”

Inspired by the song’s title, the flick for Ghost’s “Daytona 500” nabs footage from the ’60’s cartoon Speed Racer. Bizarrely, the animated scenes pair brilliantly with Ghost’s high octane raps.
